Unkle Karl strikes again!
Taking Numero Magazine to new heights, Karl Lagerfeld went behind the lens and created 5 original ‘Mod’ magazine covers with ‘Pop Couture’.
With a sixties psychedelic background, Karl Lagerfeld gives us ‘joie de vivre’ Parisian style, including fashions by;
Jean Paul Gaultier, Dior, Armani Prive, Valentino and of course Chanel showcase a youthful and carefree side of couture – still elegant but completely in line with the way modern women dress.
I don’t know about youthful and carefree as much as devastating, gorgeous and scintillating sexy.
Bravissimo, Karl Lagerfeld! Your creativity knows no bounds. Check the other four masterpieces below.
Not only is Paris the ‘City of Lights’ but to those of us who have spent time there, it is a city of fashion & architecture. And the people at Dior know that.
Hence, this lovely editorial of fabulous, lushly dressed models, Anastasia Ivanova, Daria Strokous, Iselin Steiro, Marie Piovesan and shot by the ever talented, Willy Vanderperre. It’s been out since May 29th, so in case you missed it’s release, here is your weekend dose of fashion elite!
For those readers hooked on the song in this video, the track is ‘Synrise’ by the Belgian band GOOSE. You can download it off iTunes and Amazon. Support good fashion, good music and good taste by doing just that.
There are few things in this world that have my heart. One is the house of Dior. Classy, timeless and run by Raf Simons, it is purely chic. Delicious even.
The other is my old school, goth, new wave upbringing. Namely Depeche Mode who has a soundtrack to everything in my life. Their music was timeless and full of top 40 songs I have danced to since the 80s.
What do you get when you mix awesome English band Depeche Mode with Dior?
This beautifully done campaign video. Originally released in a short version the final, long version will steal your heart. I know it did mine.
Enjoy this visual eye candy.
Secret Garden – Versailles’
A film by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, starring Daria Strokus, Melissa Stasiuk and Xiao Wen Ju in La Galeries Des Glaces – Château de Versailles.
Music by Depeche Mode: ‘Enjoy the Silence’
We all know Karl Lagerfeld is a genius. He is indeed breaking boundaries in both Fashion AND Marketing.
The first designer ever to use short films/video as a marketing tool in a major fashion house. Not just video but literal short films. He tells stories and make you forget, for just one minute, hot models dressed in head to toe Dior are selling you a product.
Here is his latest triumph, a music video, found in the pages of my Vanity Fair, ‘Secret Garden-Versailles’.
These movies are ethereal, surreal and unique. Unkle Karl is not just a genius, but a mad genius.
Gucci has followed suit with a new style of bringing the runway out of the pages of Vogue, W Mag, Bazaar as well. A brilliant move, this SS 2012, they too presented a multi-media concept with their ‘Gucci Guilty’ campaign. Although it’s brought in more of a traditional advert format they brought one thing Dior Doesn’t have to the table. Chris Evan’s.
Who is next to follow suit? Whoever it is I think they are smarter than the average multi-million dollar fashion house.
For style and giggles, Here is ‘The tale of a Fairy’, by Karl Lagerfeld with Freja Beja.
Happy Sunday, Enjoy!
